The Kauai Fire Department responds to all fire and rescue emergencies,
and co-responds with Emergency Medical Services to various medical
emergencies for the county.
The Kauai Fire Department has eight fire stations around the
island, with seven engines, seven rescue Humvees, a Hazmat truck,
several pumper apparatus, a rescue helicopter, along with other
support vehicles. The department co-responds with other public
service agencies, including Barking Sands and State Crash Crews
(155.760) at Lihue Airport.
Daily staffing includes 31 firefighters and 1 battalion chief.
American Medical Response (AMR) provides ambulance and paramedic
services for the county. They have five ambulances, including
one inter-facility unit to transport patients between various
hospital facilities around the island.
Prior to switching over to the countywide trunked radio system,
fire communications were on VHF radio frequencies.
Fire, fireground, and EMS dispatch operations moved to the countywide
trunked radio system in 1997, while ambulance-to-hospital MEDICOM
communications remain on a UHF radio frequency, on 453.400 MHz.
Information on the Kauai County 800 MHz trunked radio system
can be found here.
